PLEASE NOTE - most entries are ignoring what we want and simnply redesigning our current site. WE WANT A MICROBLOGGING TEMPLATE, so check out the example sites listed below before submitting a design.
We are in beta development stage of a travel microblogging website, and want a fresh new design that sets our site apart.
We've already developed a location search site (with maps) for travellers to find spots they are interested in. After our initial private beta release around a month ago, we are now looking to upgrade both the application as well as the look/feel of the site, to be more of a micro-blogging site.
We have a few sites to take some examples from: obviously Twitter.com, Tumblr.com and Jaiku.com first off. But other sites like placeshout.com or revou.com are worth checking out for their incorporation of maps.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We essentially want a minimalist design with some color incorporated - the exact color scheme you use is up to you.
Note: Instead of the one submit field like on twitter/jaiku, there should be 2 as in placeshout.
Also, the search results will be shown with a round "sticker" icons on the map, which may be incorporated into the logo
- Simple, clean look
- Focus is on microblog entry form (see examples)
- Smaller search form somewhere on page, with textboxes for location and tag fields
- Maps incorporated
- Minimalist design
- Examples include: twitter, jaiku, tumblr, revou, placeshout
- Possibly round stickers incorporated somehow, as these will be used to signify location on maps
- Ill tell you if you do something I dont want - but for now Im open to anything you may toss up
